Autumn 1st Half Term
Over the course of this half term we have been focusing on our Geography topic of Rubbish and Recycling. The children have spent lots of time researching and creating projects about the key areas.
We now have a Topic library displaying out projects for everyone to read.
2nd Half of the Autumn Term
Our focus for this term has been on the Anglo-Saxons. The children have really enjoyed reading and researching about how they arrived in the UK and what life was like during that time. We have found some amazing things out too....like that the Anglo-Saxons are responsible for a lot of the names of our towns and cities!! We have enjoyed the topic so much that we have been using it as a focus in literacy and we are in the process of writing our own Non-Chronological reports about the Anglo-Saxons. (See our literacy page to read them!)
1st Half of the Spring Term
We began the Spring term looking at Preston. We learnt where it was in rest of the rest of the world and within the UK. We then moved our focus to the North West of England before concentrating on Preston and its surrounding area. We had lots of fun using Digimap as well as Google Earth exploring! We then moved onto learning new map work skills. We now know what the symbols mean on OS Maps and can use these identify what is in our local area.
2nd Half of the Spring Term
As part of this topic we went to explore our local area. We did a building survey, a traffic survey and studied the church, the school, the river and Castle Hill playground.
First Half of the Summer Term
Following our visit to Ribchester before the Easter holidays, we have already learnt a lot about the Romans. We were the first people in school to use the new class set of notebooks to research the Celts who were in Britain before the Romans arrived. The new notebooks are fantastic!
